Lord Jesus Christ,have mercy on me,the sinner

The Name Jesus Christ

Father Sophrony (Sakharov) of Essex 

ΚΑΝΑ Γαμος_Wedding at Cana_ Брак в Кане Галилейской-0143 (1)“I cannot forget Thy meek and gentle gaze which drew my soul; my spirit rejoiced in paradise where I beheld Thy countenance.” 

Every invocation of the Name of Christ must be inseparably coupled with a consciousness of Christ Himself.The Name must not be detached from the Person of God…We try to stand before God with the whole of our being. So it is with our soul, whenever we call upon the most Holy Name of the Lord: a great calm follows…

The Name Jesus speaks to us of the extreme manifestation of the Fa ther’s love for us (cf.John 3.16). In proportion as the image of Christ becomes ever more sacred to us, and His word is perceived as creative energy, so a marvelous peace floods the soul while a luminous aura envelops heart and head. 

To acquire prayer is to acquire eternity. When the body lies dying, the cry ‘Jesus Christ’ becomes the garment of the soul; 

When we pronounce the Name Jesus Christ we place ourselves before the plenitude both of Divine Being and created being. We long to make His life our life; to have Him take His abode in us. In this lies the meaning of deification. 

Christian prayer is effected by the constant invocation of His Name: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy upon us and upon Thy world.
